    Featured Venue: Wilbur Theater

    January 30, 2013

    Built in 1914 by the Shubert brothers, the Wilbur Theater is a unique and extravagant event venue! Located in Boston, Massachusetts, the historic Wilbur Theater is now the ultimate destination for comedy and music events in Boston.

    Originally opening in 1915, the theater was recently revitalized by former Comedy Connection owner, Bill Blumenreich, in July 2008. Built on the site of the former Winthrop School for Girls, the Wilbur was the designed by architect Clarence H. Blackall and was the first Boston theater to draw its inspiration from American Colonial architecture, rather than European sources.

    With a large capacity of 1,200, the Federal Revival style is characterized by a quiet simplicity and intimate, almost home-like atmosphere. Over the years, both A-list comedy and music talents have performed at the Wilbur Theater. It is a must for anyone looking for an event location in the heart of Boston’s historic theater district!
